Description

Fall Prevention in Older Adults Fall Prevention in Older Adults. 

With this presentation, we hope to introduce health care providers to the epidemic of
older adults falls prevention and educate them on what they can do to address
the problem.  Falls are not often discussed between patient and providers and when they are, the provider might not know what steps to take to reduce future fall risks.  It is important that the providers know what resources are available, what other medical specialties may be able to help
them, what devices might be useful, and what other interventions they can do to
reduce future fall risks in their patients.

We hope to provide participants education of the useful evidenced-based
tests and screening measures to identify fall risks. After the assessments then
how physical therapy determines the patients plan of care for treatment of this
patient population to reduce overall fall risk. We then want to educate the
participants on the resources that are available in the community as fall
prevention programs for patients to become more actively involved with programs
to keep them active and to prevent future falls.
